ON THE BOARDS

The Lambda Iota Chapter of Purdue University’s Phi Gamma Delta sorority engaged Rowland Design to explore various design options to meet the expanding needs of the chapter. Our design team was able to capture and prioritize the chapter house program by generating a design survey distributed to existing collegiate members, chapter alumni and house corporation board members. Employing the approved program scope and input from a design charrette, a schematic rendering of the proposed addition was produced.

The renovation of the historic building will include the reconfiguration of the existing floors and addition. Community toilet and shower rooms will also receive a much-needed refresh. A comprehensive interior and exterior facelift will benefit future student living and learning.

Rowland Designed was engaged to design multiple spaces within Purdue University’s Harrison Hall.  A former dining hall space was repurposed to a new student study and activity room. The university desired to pay homage to President William Henry Harrison for whom the hall is named. Custom art work was created that highlights pop-art portraits of leading American presidents. The reimagined space features vibrant colors and applications of bold stripes. The space is used primarily for games, study, television viewing and large student led meetings.

The lower level study lounge is a social hub catering to student study groups.  A blend of various seating including lounge, booth as well as a mix of tables and chairs offer students selections that best suit their study needs.  Much of the seating is on casters allowing for greater flexibility. Energetic colors were also used in the remodel in addition to dynamic carpet patterns.
